A TikToker doing their neighborly duty.
@iifunanyauI do this every morning to make sure the neighbors are good 👌🏾##socialdistancing ##coronavirus ##corona ##quarantine♬ original sound – starlenia
Being a good neighbor these days looks a bit different than it usually does, and it generally involves staying on your side of the street. This TikToker wants to check in with her neighbor from a safe distance, so she calls out the notes Elsa hears in Frozen 2. What she gets back doesn't quite match up with the movie.
What travel looks like these days.
@ananya.h.kulkarniDoes this count as physical activity? ##fyp ##quarantine ##got2bStyled ##ontherunway♬ Some Cut (Explicit Version) – Trillville
When you're stuck inside your own home, you need to think of ways to shake up your routine. Tired of the wine country in your kitchen? Why not take the express train to your couch?

Parents caught their twins having a candid conversation about "quarantines" in their bedroom, and it's too adorable. If only we could battle the coronavirus with pillows.

This pure grandma.
@kirstofrshe wouldn't come back out until I took the money♬ original sound – kirstofr

Friday night in quarantine with the boys
@bwarrrrWhat are you all doing during Quarantine?? ##fyp ##foryoupage ##coronamonday ##foryou ##coronavirus ##theboys♬ The Weeknd – Blinding Lights – gregdahl7
TikTok has birthed a few dance crazes, including the "Savage" challenge and "Blinding Lights", which is featured in this video. Once a famous TikToker choreographs a dance, many iterations of it are created. If you don't learn at least one of them during quarantine, you're just not doing it right.
This quarantine birthday celebration.

While many have transitioned from in-person classes and heading into the office to working from home, it can be tempting to…be a little less productive than usual, let's just say. We can't promise it'll work, but this TikToker has a strategy for getting out of doing her work that's the modern-day equivalent of, "I'm going into a tunnel. I'm going to lose you."
The next Steve Jobs
@livingfitwithleticiaNo gym? No prob 😉 ##socialdistancingchallenge ##fyp♬ original sound – livingfitwithleticia
It's tough trying to stay active and get those endorphins flowing when gyms and studio fitness classes are out of the question. You probably shouldn't try this solution at home, but the sheer innovation is pretty astounding.
Joe Jonas goes to Hogwarts.
@joejonasToday's creation 🔮♬ original sound – joejonas
Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers is killing it on TikTok during this quarantine. This complicated Harry Potter LEGO setup comes with music and dialogue. Some of his other videos feature wife Sophie Turner (of Game of Thrones fame), who's equally bored and entertaining.

This Hannah Montana throwback.
Miley Cyrus posted this scene from her old Disney Channel show Hannah Montana, and it's weirdly prophetic. The singer and actor has been helping combat boredom and bad moods on both TikTok and Instagram, where she is hosting a daily talk show with famous guests.

Here is another entry into a TikTok dance challenge—this time with Mark Wahlberg and his family. It seems his daughter is his biggest critic, but they're having fun together and that's what's important.
